"The plight of battered husbands is, of course, a serious issue, especially given the gender bias of modern society. But one can't help feeling Liza's ex is unlikely to be a useful role model in this regard. By his own description, his wife is an 'overweight, raging alcoholic'. An overweight, raging alcoholic with two artificial hips who's almost a decade his senior and barely over 5 ft tall. Couldn't he have run for his life? Or, come to that, strolled for his life?"
